Extensive experience in breast cancer treatments

As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer a level of expertise found only in the top cancer centers across the country. Our teams of physicians, surgeons, counselors and therapists in Raleigh and Durham have made breast cancer their top priority. Our skills and experience come from working only with breast cancer patients every day. We use the latest technologies and research findings to detect abnormal breast lumps and masses, and treat all types of breast cancer. And, if you require breast reconstruction, our plastic surgeons are available to discuss your options.

Choose Duke for your breast cancer treatment because we offer:

  • Novel therapies developed by our researchers. As clinical trial participants, our patients were among the first to gain access to new breast cancer treatments, including the recently approved Kadcyla, which was developed at Duke.
  • Nationally ranked cancer program. We are consistently ranked among the best cancer programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
  • Access to our clinical trials. Our doctors are investigating new ways to approach breast tumors, how exercise impacts treatment and survival, and how to improve the quality of our patients’ lives. You may be eligible to participate in our clinical trials, which are using new vaccines to treat different types of breast cancer, including early stage breast cancer, HER2, HER3, triple negative and metastatic breast cancer.
  • Doctors who come to you. Rather than find your way to the various appointments involved in cancer diagnosis and treatment, each member of your breast cancer team visits you in your exam room. That goes a long way toward reducing unnecessary stress and anxiety. It also ensures you have all the information you need to make decisions about your care. Imaging, testing and breast cancer treatments are also conveniently located within our facilities.
  • Comforting environment to ease your anxiety. Our Duke Cancer Center features spacious waiting areas, a Quiet Room, large infusion rooms, and an outdoor rooftop garden area where patient, based on their treatment regimen, can receive chemotherapy outdoors.

  • Doctors who work with your doctors. If you seek care at Duke and continue your radiation or chemotherapy closer to home, our doctors will coordinate your treatment plan with your doctors. We also provide second opinions and share information with doctors near you.
  • Support for your whole being. Our comprehensive cancer support services range from helping patients minimize the side effects of treatment to coping with the emotional and psychological effects of diagnosis and treatment. Our breast cancer survivorship clinic also pulls together a range of resources specially designed to help survivors after treatment ends.
